In 1814 a local man by the name of Jonathan Anderson founded Anderson's Free School on the site of Forres House Community Centre. This later became Anderson's Institute, then Forres Academy before being converted to a Primary School in 1971. In 1926 the main teaching block of 13 Classrooms were built to supplement the original hall/gymnasium and 2 general purpose rooms.
